Since I was out on the West Coast, I was able to go see the Kodak booth at WPPI 2010 in Las Vegas. The booth was colorful and full of information about how Kodak can provide excellent solutions for pro photographers and pro labs.
There were lots of samples of Kodak pro papers and printing.
Guests could stop by and get a sample of film or paper.
Right in the middle of the booth were examples of beautiful books produced by pro photolabs using Kodak solutions.
I was particularly enamoured with this book which played music and audio clips as you turned the pages. On one page you could hear the wedding vows of the pictured couple!
This year they had a fun challenge where if you visited nine of the many booths at the show that use Kodak Pro Quality Products and Solutions, you could get a Kodak Pro Quality t-shirt!
I saw lots of folks with the t-shirt.
Some were already wearing theirs!
Tuesday evening Kodak was pleased to host an event with the famed nature photographer and Twitter guru, Scott Bourne. He shared some of his beautiful bird photos and then offered great advice for photographers looking to use Twitter to promote their business.
After the talk, Kodak’s Joe Pagilia joined Scott on stage to announce a very exciting plan. This coming year Kodak will watch social media to see how photographers are using it to enhance their business and then will be awarding in 2011 the first ever “Excellence in Connection” award. We will be sure to share more information soon about this exciting award!
